    Anela Segreti and Mary Bacsain of the Easter Seals accept the $800 proceeds of Da Sale campaign from John Wada and Ron Wood of FM97. Segreti, the state employment services manager for Easter Seals, said the funds will remain on Kauai.

    Lyric Gibson, the Americorps worker at the Kauai Habitat for Humanity, gets ready to attack a room with paint after arriving here in September (does that mean she got to experience the Hammers and Ales?) at the Eleele Iluna neighborhood.

    Mary Schuessler of Wisconsin, center, found twine can be the basis for construction fashion by tying up the sleeves for Trivent Financial group Lonnie Sievert (she was at the Big Island Blitz, recently) of Minnesota, left, and Fabiean Hershey of Pennsylvania, right.

If you want to know more about Mary Bacsain, you’ll have to wait until next week because the news is embargo-ed until then.

Mary was joined by Anela Segreti (she said Mary Lou Mendes wants people to visit her at the Coconut Marketplace), the state employment services manager for Easter Seals, in accepting proceeds of Da Sale, Wednesday from John Wada and Ron Wood (he even got an FM97 cap for the occasion) of the station located at FM 96.9 on the dial. Anela said all of the proceeds will remain on Kauai for Easter Seals’ use in its early intervention, adult services, and employment services.

Milani Pimental said the recent Hammers and Ale fundraiser was a lot of work, but it was fun work. She said people are already talking about the second one (it might become an annual thing, yet).

Milani was checking on the Trivent Financial volunteer group who started work at the Eleele Iluna neighborhood where Mary Schuessler of Wisconsin found that pieces of twine can be the basis for functional construction fashion (Figaroa has his big fashion shindig coming up, Nov. 19 at the Koloa Landing resort).

But there was no Kit-Kats for Lonnie Sievert from Joseph Hershey (he’s worked at the Hershey’s factory for 40 years, keeping the peanut butter cups and Kit-Kats moving) of Pennsylvania … not to worry, Cassie Mertes (she needs chocolate before bed every night) of Wisconsin has already discovered the Kauai Chocolate Factory at Port Allen and the Hamma Jangs.
